Publisher's Summary

Elena

To most, Kal Anderson is a villain. Harbinger of death, keeper of souls, frequenter of nightmares. Doctor Death. Hades incarnate. They say he stole me. Usurped my fiancé and filled the cracks in my heart with empty promises. Imprinted his crimson fingerprints on my psyche and tried to set me free. They’re not wrong, per se.

Except it was my choice to stay.

Kal

To most, Elena Ricci is an innocent. Goddess of springtime, lover of poetry, angel of my nightmares. Little one. Persephone personified. They say I ruined her. Shattered her virtue and devoured her soul like a succulent pomegranate. Embedded my evil as deep as I could possibly get and tried to set her free. They’re not wrong, per se.

Except it was she who ruined me.

Promises and Pomegranates is a full-length, stand-alone dark contemporary romance inspired by the Hades and Persephone myth. It is not fantasy or a literal retelling.

Love it

I have been waiting for this audiobook since early this year. I loved it. I was already so in love with the story before but the audiobook was great.

Fun listen

Really enjoyed listening. The narration was great and not cringey - which sometimes I find romance/erotica audibles to be. Enjoyed the story and would def listen to more by these narrators and author!

Don’t read

This is going to be harsh but I’m speechless. This was the worst book I’ve ever “read”. There’s zero plot and the “romance” sucks. Not cheesy bad, just bad. I was only able to finish by upping the speed to see if something interesting was being saved for the end. There wasn’t. Seriously don’t waste your time.

SPICY

I enjoyed the level of spice that was in the book along with the story that followed. At the beginning I wasn’t sure if it was gonna be a story but it developed and I cannot stop reading or in this case listening!

Too many pov switches

I love how the book was progressing and it’s extremely,y well written, it just has too many pov changes, each chapter it’s switching and it’s hard for me, at least, to keep my attention and not throw me off once I’m engaged

Plot?

Plenty of spice…weirdly like zero plot? Like I kept waiting for it all to come together or for her to get like kidnapped or something…ANYTHING? But there wasn’t really anything.

The narrators were good

Just No...

If I could write just no I would. This book never got better, in fact it got worse. Last two hours and I called it quits. Normally I can chug through a bad hour or two on a book I don't really care for but I couldn't.

Mixed feelings - 3.5 Stars

I had such mixed feelings this book, especially after all the great reviews this book got, but unfortunately it just didn’t quite hit the mark for me. The author’s writing style was really good and did not disappoint, but the storyline, which was loosely based on a modern retelling of Hades and Persephone, was not my favourite… and then again it wasn’t the worst I’ve ever read.

I personally found the age gap between the MC’s to be an issue (she was 18 (a mere child) and he was 32), so some their interactions were a bit disconnected and frustrating at times. It also felt as though the author was trying too hard with the sex scenes, and there were sooo many… making it a bit boring and so annoying to listen to after a while, even though they were really well written. 🌶🌶🌶

I though the narrator did an excellent job bringing the book to life, but I haven’t decided whether I want to continue with the series in the future.

PS. I absolutely love the book cover. I think it’s so beautiful!
